Built Houston: How Architecture Defines the Bayou City
As Houston has grown from a frontier village to a sprawling metropolis, its architecture has reflected local realities and ambitions. The city’s buildings tell the story of two centuries of growth, from tents hastily pitched as homes and businesses in the 1830s to gleaming skyscrapers reared during energy booms of the 20th and 21st centuries. Jim Parsons will give an overview of Bayou City architecture in this Sunday lecture, looking at some of our most notable buildings and how they can help us better understand an ever-changing urban landscape.
